3-way light switch, 2 'hot' lines
So, I'm trying to fix lots of PO issues in a new-to-me, 1930's home. Today I'm working on 2 banks of 3 way switches. I've seen this error before, one switch will turn the light on and off, the other will Only work if the first switch is "on". Since 3-ways are newish to me, I was following this guide:
And it was spot on for all but 1 of the light circuits (sets of switches). The 2 remaining switches Both have a hot/120v white coming into them. So, since that threw me for a loop and I don't have online access from the house I came home to search, but I'm not finding anything.
What I'd like to know is if there is Ever a time when this would be correct? If yes, care to explain the correct wiring? If no.. well, I guess I'll be correcting the issue next weekend (10th wedding anniversary today, taking a week long vacation to hike, camp, and hit micro-breweries in NC).
